Murder of John P. Wheeler Connected to Mass Bird Deaths?

Last week, a celebrated and influential Pentagon insider and defense contractor was found dead in Delaware. The body of John P. Wheeler was discovered as a garbage truck dumped its load at a landfill. The death has been ruled a homicide, and thus far the investigators who are piecing together the case have offered no clear motive or reason for his mysterious murder.

In seemingly unrelated news, there has been a sudden die-off of birds and fish in the southern United States that has a lot of people talking about the apocalypse. First 5,000 blackbirds plummeted to the earth in Arkansas, littering the ground with their corpses and even hitting passers-by. Then a few days later, 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings were found dead in nearby Louisiana. And 80,000 drum fish died in an Arkansas river close to where the blackbirds died.

No one knows for sure what has caused all these animals to die. Some people feel that the fish deaths were caused by the outbreak of disease, and are thus unrelated to the bird deaths. So then what caused the birds to drop dead so suddenly? Most experts are suggesting massive trauma (as opposed to disease) caused by such things as fireworks displays, collisions with power lines, and possibly even extreme weather.

Naturally, conspiracy theories abound. Some have suggested miniature black holes caused by the particle accelerators atFermilab. Others think that HAARP, a government-funded atmospheric radio frequency project, is to blame. But the most fascinating theory centers around John Wheeler.

According to an article at, and reprinted at The EU Times in a more readable form, Wheeler may have been killed because he knew too much. He was apparently an expert many times over in the field of chemical and biological weapons. So he certainly would have been familiar with Phosgene, “described as one of the most feared chemical weapons ever used due to its ability to literally cause the lungs and respiratory system to explode.”

Apparently, Phosgene taken from Iraq’s stockpiles had been stored at a military base in Arkansas for the past few years. Last week it was loaded onto a military transport plane bound for Afghanistan, which subsequently had some sort of malfunction shortly after takeoff, which may have released some of the deadly chemical into the air.

Interestingly, what has been observed so far in the bodies of the dead birds? ABC News reports:

“According to preliminary testing, the trauma was primarily in breast tissue, with blood clots in the body cavity and internal bleeding.”

And George Badley, Arkansas state veterinarian, is quoted in the same article as saying:

“Almost every one of them … had multiple internal hemorrhages which would mean that it was trauma, not a disease process. Their stomachs were empty, which would rule out toxicity from eating some kind of poison grain.”

According to the aforementioned WhatDoesItMean article, Wheeler knew exactly what was happening, and determined to keep this dangerous chemical weapon from being used on the battlefield in Afghanistan, marched straight to Washington D.C. to raise hell with the powers-that-be. That got him “marked”, and soon after, he was dead.


The latest eyewitness reports to trickle in of Wheeler in the days before his death describe a “disheveled” and disoriented man, stumbling into various businesses and mumbling strange statements. Could he have been drugged? Was it perhaps an attempt at character assassination, so that any information revealed after his death could be conveniently disregarded as the ramblings of a drunk, a junkie, or a lunatic?

What do you think about the theory posited above? Is there a real connection between the animal deaths in the southern US and John Wheeler’s murder? Or is it truly just a conspiracy theory dreamed up by people with too much time on their hands? Post a comment below and let us know your opinion.
